MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Members of the Menominee Nation are planning to march through the streets of Madison and hold a rally in the state Capitol to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s decision to deny the tribe permission to build a casino in Kenosha.
Tribal members began walking from their northeastern Wisconsin reservation to Madison on Friday to raise awareness of Walker’s decision. They were expected to arrive on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus at 11 a.m. Thursday. A tribal spokesman says the number of marchers has grown and shrunk but three members have walked every step.
The spokesman says the tribe has rented 10 buses to bring more tribal members to Madison to meet them. They then plan to march from campus to the Capitol and hold a rally in the rotunda.
